  •  Lima: Interview with Carolyn Lima following the conclusion of her second murder trial. Lima was convicted in 1961 for the fatal shooting of Houston realtor Fred Tones and sentenced to execution. Lima’s boyfriend, Leslie Elaine Perez (a transgender woman then known as Leslie Douglas Ashley) was also convicted and sentenced to death. Both were granted new trials after the US Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the prosecution had suppressed evidence. Following their second trials, Lima was sentenced to five years in prison, and Perez was declared insane and sent to a state mental hospital in San Antonio. Perez escaped, spending six months on the run before being discovered working as a clown for a traveling carnival. She was tried again for Tones’ murder and sentenced to 15 years, serving five.

Hoover was accused of masterminding the March 11 robbery of a River Oaks home, during which three people were assaulted. Hoover’s alleged accomplice, John Oscar Young, also told law enforcement that Hoover was in possession of property stolen during the January 9 burglary of a Corrigan’s jewelry store. Police recovered two large diamonds, later identified by the robbery victims, and a .44 caliber revolver from Hoover’s residence. A jury found Hoover guilty of the crime and sentenced him to 60 years. He was released in 1981 after serving 14 years for the robbery and two years for income tax fraud.  
  •  P Foreman Drops Ruby, 03/23/64: Criminal defense attorney Percy Foreman explains why he withdrew from representing convicted murderer Jack Ruby. Ruby fatally shot Lee Harvey Oswald while the latter was in police custody for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Ruby was convicted on March 14, receiving a death sentence. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals later overturned the conviction, and Ruby died before the start of a new trial. Foreman was one of the best known trial lawyers in the United States. He is perhaps best known for defending James Earl Ray, the assassin of Martin Luther King Jr.   
  •  Dr. Ralph Bunch [sic], 03/25/64: Press conference with Dr. Ralph Bunche, an American political scientist and diplomat, about the crisis in Cyprus. Bunche was instrumental in the formation of the United Nations. In 1950, he received the Nobel Peace Prize for mediating an end to the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. President Kennedy awarded Bunche the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1963.

This film from KHOU-TV Channel 11 in Houston contains a series of short news segments that would have aired as highlights to news stories. Many are silent and would have been voiced over by the anchorperson during a live broadcast. The titles for each segment are the originals created by KHOU-TV. The clips on this reel all date from February and March 1964. This series includes interviews with convicted murderer Carolyn Lima, criminal defense attorney Percy Foreman, and American diplomat Ralph Bunche.
The digital preservation of this collection was made possible by a grant to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image and the Houston Public Library from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
 
Many more films from the KHOU-TV Collection are available on the Houston Public Library Houston Area Digital Archives website.
